Investigations are continuing after the body of a woman who was shot was found at a remote rural property in Norfolk.

A murder investigation was launched after the body of 65-year-old Lesley Page was found at the Grade II listed home in Lady's Drove, Emneth, in west Norfolk at 7.30am on Monday, September 11.

Provisional results of a post-mortem examination showed the cause of death to be gunshot wounds to the torso. 

Police arrested a man in his 60s on suspicion of murder.

A spokesman for Norfolk police said "investigations continue" into the incident.

As previously reported Alix Wright, senior investigating officer, said police were "not currently looking for anyone else in connection with this incident" but added they were "keeping an open mind and the investigation continues to establish the full facts".

The 17th century home is on the edge of the village and overlooks flat, open fields.

It is little more than a mile from Bleak House, in the neighbouring village of Emneth Hungate, where farmer Tony Martin turned his gun on two burglars in August 1999, killing one and wounding the other.
